Adventureland’s new Storm Chaser (VIDEO)

storm-chaser

Over the weekend, Adventureland debuted their first new thrill ride in a decade with the Storm Chaser. The ride is like the old spinning swing rides you’re used to seeing at carnivals and fairs, but it takes the fun up several notches – almost 300 “notches” (or feet) in the air! Check out the video below of my first ride on the Storm Chaser and also some of the photos I took from high above.
